Learn about 800 years of fashion in this fun and interactive workshop! To celebrate Bealtaine this year we’re offering free 800 Years of Fashion Outreach Visits to retirement and nursing homes for the first 3 weeks in May. Participants will learn about the evolution of dress and will have the chance to try the costumes on and dress up as Elizabethan nobility or Medieval serfs. This workshop covers eight periods between 1200 and 1920. These visits quickly book out so express your interest and booking through The Education Department soon. When the Outreach visits are over the Fashion show will be installed throughout the Museum to encourage visitors to explore the relationships between fashion and history.
